The Apple Tree Story

It's an irresistible combination: Vivacious Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth plays three distinct roles in a trio of one-act musicals from the songwriting team of Fiddler on the Roof and She Loves Me. It's The Apple Tree, back on Broadway for the first time in 40 years in a Roundabout Theatre Company production at Studio 54. The revival also marks Chenoweth's return to the Broadway stage two years after her acclaimed performance as Glinda in Wicked and her jump into movies (RV) and television (The West Wing). This production of The Apple Tree is based on a 2005 staged concert for the New York City Center Encores! series, which won raves for its petite star. Chenoweth plays Eve, Princess Barbara and Ella in musicals based on Mark Twain's The Diary of Adam and Eve, Frank R. Stockton's The Lady or the Tiger? and Jules Feiffer's Passionella, respectively. With a lovely score and witty book by the legendary Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick, The Apple Tree is a must-see revival for lovers of musical theater.
